Art Journaling

I have signed up for two journaling projects starting the first of the year. What was I thinking? And will I even be able to do either one? Oh well.
One of them is called the Sketchbook Challenge and there is an icon in my sidebar that will take you right to where you need to sign up. The other one is free classes offered by Strathmore. They have new visual journals this year with all different kinds of papers in them, including watercolor. It sounded interesting, so I signed up back in November sometime. I bought some new art supplies on Saturday when I was shopping in Evansville, but couldn’t get the watercolor visual journal. So I ordered it online. Dick Blick is totally out of them and Jerry’s Artarama have them on backorder! There are over 1000 people signed up for the Strathmore journaling classes, so I guess everyone has pretty well beat me to the 9″ x 12″ watercolor 140 lb. paper visual journal. Evansville Dick Blick did not stock them.
I bought some oil pastels after reading reviews about Sennelier being about the best the reviewers had ever tried. A couple of triple liner markers (these are very cool and come in very cool colors) to add to my current collection, and some Pentel artist markers as well as a graphite pencil. We’ll see what happens! I think it will be great fun if I just give myself permission to do it.
